Model Number: cce3451
I have a glass cook top that has several major cracks in it (unusable). I'd like to repair it, but the glass top is not available from the manufacturer any longer so I'll have to put in an entirely new one. Before I buy one, I'm trying to remove the old cook top to measure the opening, but I'm having trouble with this. I can't get it loose from the counter top. The installation instructions say to fix it in place with foam tape along the front and back, but it appears the installer used latex caulk (or a combination of tape and caulk) instead and put it all along the front and both sides. I've been able to scrape most of it out from under the front but I can't get a blade under the sides to remove the adhesive.
I assume this is a typical problem and would like some advice as to what I has worked for others.
Also, I've checked with local and internet parts suppliers for new glass tops and they say they are not available any longer. Any one know of where I might look for a used one for this cook top?
